AccuQuilt Shopping

Studio Supplies 022316I couldn’t help myself recently when Accuquilt had a big sale on dies. I had already put some Studio mats in my cart and was on the fence on how badly I needed them – shipping can be a lot when the order isn’t much. Then I received an email that offered half off Studio dies! I decided to get the 2.5″ multiple die, I do have the Go die but there are an extra 3 squares on the Studio die, and the signature die. I made that runner for Valentine’s Day using it and there are a lot of designs I’ve seen lately using it so why not be able to cut more out at once? Hoping to be back soon with some finishes, I have 3 quilts just needing binding.

Valentine’s Finish!

Vday runner 3I managed to get this finished just in time for the Valentine’s holiday weekend! The whole thing was cut out with my Studio and was 100% fabrics from my stash. I saw the idea on one of my Facebook groups and knew I had to make it for our breakfast bar, besides I needed to get the Christmas one off! 🙂 It was easy piecing and pretty easy to quilt since I just did 1/4″ on either side of the seam lines. I ended up also doing an X inside the X because I felt it really needed it. Threw it in the washer and it came out of the dryer all nice and crinkly, just the way I like it.Vday runner 2

Basketweave scarf 020616I’m a day late with this, but I just started a new project last night and needed to get a picture of it! I really didn’t need a new project, but Alex had asked me awhile ago to make him a red scarf (his favorite color). I had the yarn, just didn’t have a pattern. So this week I spent a little time on Ravelry and found a cute basketweave scarf pattern. It’s really an easy pattern, I’ve already completed 2 repeats and hope to get a lot more done this weekend. I did get a little more done on the camo blanket for my sister, but I’ve already put it away and don’t feel like getting it out for another picture! 🙂 Hopefully I’ll have the scarf completed quickly so I can work on one of the other projects.
